I Want to Hold Your Hand

I want to hold your hand
It's gentle curves so delicate
But strong and rigid
You grace the visage of my palm

Your hand makes me feel wanted
It Makes me feel warm
It Makes me feel protected
It helps me weather the storm

Our spirits can dance out our fingertips
Glossy memories dance through our palms
Our lives can intertwine
Weaving together on Love's loom

It's just two hands though
Mindless interlocking of fingers
Seemingly meaningless
The comfort of your hand lingers

Just to hold your hand
For a second, a minute, an hour
I'd give the world for it
This action has the most divine pow'r

This is very good. I like the meaning of it. There is a bit of hopeless romatic in all of us. I think.

Wow, this is really good. I understand what you are saying. The deeper meaning of holding hands, the content feeling. Really strong.

I know right! It's just sooo... soothing, and comforting, it's hard to explain. :)
